Countdown to the Friday Night Fling
This Friday, March 6th is our biggest Fundraiser for PTO, "The Friday Night Fling." This Fundraiser is truly the BACKBONE of PTO funding. We rely on the success of this event to pay for Assemblies, Book Fairs, Holiday Shop, Graduation Awards, 8th Grade Dinner Dance, and more. There is still time to purchase tickets. They are $35 in advance and $40 at the door. Ticket order forms are available at Door 6 Desk, on-line: ncs-nj.org Home Page, or by contacting Jill Asuncion @ email@example.com or 335-9099.
It is not too late to make a last minute Donation. You do not have to be present to participate. Any contribution to NCS PTO Is ALWAYS appreciated.
So please join us in supporting you NCS PTO in making The 7th Annual Friday Night Fling a fun and memorable event for all. Bring your partner and some friends and make it a date or even a Ladies Night Out! I'm looking forward to seeing all of you at our NEW VENUE, Sandi Pointe Coastal Bistro in Somers Point from 7:30-11:30 on March 6th. Also new this year is Credit Cards will be accepted for our new and improved Silent Auction for your convenience.
NCS PTO granted funds to Fourth Grade teacher, Mrs. Barb Shenkus, Chairperson for Elementary School Renaissance Activities. This program provides many fun filled seasonal activities where prizes are awarded for contest winners. Educational activities include a Spelling Bee and Spring Reading incentive program where prizes and awards are also given to contest winners. PTO takes great pleasure in being able to provide funds for all these events throughout the year.
SHOW YOUR SCHOOL SPIRIT!
Thank you to our NCS Community for supporting PTO's Inaugural School Spirit Wear Fundraiser. You made this a great success for PTO and the clothes look great on everyone. Look for our return in the future.
No Time to Volunteer?
WELL THEN HERE'S YOUR ANSWER
Collect, Clip, and Save Box Top for Education and Campbell Soup Labels for Education. Look for these logos on the products you buy and send them in to your child's Teacher or to the Elementary and Middle school Offices. There is also a collection box by the Elementary Office. Over $4,000.00 was earned last year alone! Throughout the year, Our Box top Committee will hold contest to see which class or grade collects the most labels. There is a reward for all that hard work so keep on clipping! See the links on our PTO page for more information.
